3. Invite friends to like your page
Next thing you want to do, is inviting friends to like your page.
You also go to groups and ask people to like your page. The more likes you get, the more explosure your page gets.
After getting a few likes, you have to consider publishing contents relating to your niche (topic)
You don’t need to write hundreds of words, just make it engaging and shareable.
Facebook posts don’t get indexed on search engines hence writing a 3000 words posts is useless if it is not engaging.
Best content types for facebook are photos and videos.
5. Promote your page/posts
Facebook has over 1billion users waiting to digest your content but the problem is, not this 1billion users can locate your content.
Actaully you don’t need these 1 billion users, all your need is a few hundred that enjoy your content.
Now, unlike websites where your contents can be found on Google, Facebook actually aint the same.
On facebook, your posts either get shared, promoted or hidden forever. Hence, run a few promotions.
6. Monetize your page/posts
How do you make money from Facebook? Can i run adsense on facebook? No you can’t but there is a better way of monetizing facebook pages/blogs
Unlike adsense that requires a website with content, affiliate marketing only requites a user base (a few persons interested in your product)
Hence, you can make money on facebook by signing up for a few affiliate funnels such as clinkbank and start making money on facebook.
Blogging on facebook is free and easy to start but however you have to be careful not to get your page banned.
You can also start wordpress a blog for free with free hosting.
